Custom Source Control In CruiseControl.NET?

comments edit

I'm in the unlucky position that CruiseControl.NET doesn't support the source control provider (Seapine Surround SCM) we use here at work. Briefly looking at the source code for CCNET, I noticed that I could create support for Surround SCM by implementing the ISourceControl interface via inheriting the ProcessSourceControl.cs class. However, before I go down that road, does anyone know if I can add a custome source control provider as a plug-in?

For example, if you want to use a build tool other than NAnt or Devenv.exe, you can create a builder plug-in by following these instructions. Will that work for creating a custom source control plugin? (Of course I'd be replacing IBuilder with ISourceControl or ProcessSourceControl.cs).

I'd prefer not to compile my update into the main code branch as I don't want to maintain a variant of CruiseControl.NET. Likewise, I don't want to write this plug-in if someone else already has one out there. It might be a better use of my time to convince my dept to switch SCM tools. ;)
